More bodies of people allegedly lured by Pastor Paul Makenzi have been retrieved from shallow graves in Malindi’s Shakahola village in Kilifi County in Kenya, Standard Media reports

On Friday, detectives, with help from the locals, exhumed seven bodies, including three children. Yesterday the team exhumed 15 bodies, including five children.

Saturday’s development gave credence to reports of several mass graves containing remains of worshipers of Makenzi’s Good News International Church.

According to Standard Media Kenya, even the torrential rains pounding the Coast could not erase the fetid of death in the thickets of Shakahola where detectives believe there are more than 60 bodies.

Meanwhile, Malindi DCI chief Charles Kamau dismissed reports that pastor Makenzi had staged a hunger strike in police cells. He said more bodies were to be exhumed by the end of yesterday.

The pastor is in police custody after a Malindi Magistrate Court allowed detectives to detain him for 15 days to enable them conduct investigations into activities of the alleged cult-like church in Malindi.

Makenzi is suspected to have enticed his followers into starving to death, ostensibly to meet Jesus Christ. He has denied the allegations and insisted he closed his ministry in 2019.
